New HeinOnline Libraries Now Available to the Law Center Community

Nearly every day at our reference desk, I direct patrons to  the wide  array of resources accessible through HeinOnline.  From journal articles to session laws and treaties to agency decisions, I am still amazed at the breadth and depth of our HeinOnline content.  Starting today, the O’Quinn Law Library now has even more content accessible through HeinOnline for researchers to discover.

The newly available collections include:

Foreign & International Law Resources Database: A vast collection of international yearbooks, international tribunals and judicial decisions, English translations of foreign penal codes, and materials from the Court of Justice of the European Communities.

American Law Institute Library: Materials from the American Law Institute including restatements, drafts, studies, and more from the American Law Institute.

History of International Law: Library includes more than 1,100 titles and 800,000 pages dating back to 1690 on International Law subjects

Intellectual Property Law Collection:  Focusing on copyrights, patents, and trademarks in the United States, this collection features more than 100 legislative histories, which provide researchers with a complete history of copyright laws from 1909 to date, along with other books and materials.

Congress and the Courts: This library, featuring William H. Manz's Congress and the Courts: A Legislative History 1787-2010, brings together materials reflecting congressional concern with the composition and structure of Article III Courts and provides all relevant documents prepared by various Congresses relating to the purpose, formation, organization, and restructuring of the federal government.

Immigration Law & Policy in the U.S.: This monumental collection is a compilation of the most important historical documents and legislation related to immigration in the United States as well as current hearings, debates and recent developments in immigration law. This first comprehensive database includes BIA Precedent Decisions, legislative histories, law and policy titles, extradition titles, scholarly articles, an extensive bibliography, and other related works.

Bar Journals: This collection features more than 100 state and local Bar Journals.

Hein has also announced that HeinOnline will have an enhanced interface coming later this month. The new, streamlined look will be more responsive to mobile devices and is more user-friendly. You can see a preview of HeinOnline’s new look here.
